I have been experimenting with a ducted fan tricopter. It flys much better then I thought it would, flying time is about 5 minutes on a 4 cell 3300mah battery. It is a blast to fly.
it looks great. I thought ducted fan multis would be difficult to control but it doesn't look like. You can now make your own Avatar Scorpio ship :D I'm thinking on building myself a ducted multi for a while, maybe this would be the incentive I needed. Congratulations.
looks great Ed!
Very neat. It's too bad we can't make quads out of ducted fans, and the battery life issue.
Is there an advantage to using ducted fans? It seems much louder than normal open prop.
The cost of crashing an EDF keeps the popularity down.
Awesome! Good work sir.
They are great at converting energy into noise
In defence or edf's, they are good generating high thrust, and of course are less prone to influence by turbulent air. (i.e. wind) They're just not very good at generating efficient lift for quads. If only there was a way to make them more efficient.
Well Done Ed, this was in my head for a long time and I am glad somebody had the courage to put into action.
great work and good luck.
Next step, jet turbines.. :)
